Soon we might see same planet like earth, according to new study chances are higher than previously imagined


Astronomers have found a planet and a star more like the Earth and the Sun than any other pair previously found. The star Kepler-160 and his orbiting planet KOI-456.04 are situated about 3000 light years away so that the surface of the planet can even have liquid water.

A discovery of a stellar star first observed by NASA's space telescope was made in Germany by researchers from the Max Planck Insace for Solar Systems Research (MPS). In 2010 research showed that Kepler-160 could be orbiting two exoplanets. The researchers believe that three or even four exoplanets, including the KOI-456.04 Earthlike, are actually located in the star.

The majority of exoplanets discovered so far is bigger than the Earth, approximately four times as big or about the same size as Neptune. However, sometimes, astronomers find a rocky planet of the Earth's size. However these are often red dwarf stars that surround the planet, only causing faint radiation.

Sheffield university research has discovered that early phases of formation are much more likely than initially assumed to seek Same planet like earth

The community has researched groups of young stars in the Milky Way in order to see if these groups are typical compared with previous theories and observations in other star formation areas and to study whether star populations in such groups affect the probability of finding Earth-like planetary formation.

The study released in The Astrophysical Journal shows that in these groups there are more stars like the Sun than are expected, which will make similar to earth planets more likely to find them at their early stages of formation.

These planets, known as the Magma Ocean planets, are still in their early stages of formation due to collisions with rocks and planets that cause them to heat so much that their particles become molten rock.

The team led by Dr. Richard Parker included university students of Sheffield to apply the skills they had learned to leading research published in their field.

"THESE magma planets are easier to detect near stars like the Sun, twice as heavy as average density star. These planets emit so much heat that we can observe the glimmer by using the next generation of infrared telescopes," said Dr Richard Parker from the Department of Physics and Astronomy of Sheffield University.

"The sites where these planets are found are so-called 'young moving groups' of young stars, less than 100 million years old, who for a star are young. However, they usually have just a few ten stars each and previously, because they fuse into the background of the Milcy Way galaxy, it was difficult to determine whether we found all of the stars in every groups.

The Gaia telescope observations have helped us in these groups to discover many more stars which allowed us to conduct this study.'

The research findings will help us understand whether the formation of stars is universal and important to study the shape of rocky and habitable planets such as the Earth. The team is now looking for the origin of these young moving star group with computer simulations.

The students of the University of Sheffield 's Department of Physics and Astronomy included Amy Bottrill, Molly Haigh, Madeleine Hole and Sarah Theakston in the Research Team.

The University of Sheffield 's Department of Physics and Astronomy explore the key laws of the universe and developing pioneering real-world technologies. Researchers are exploring remote galaxies outside the planet, tackling global issues such as energy security and exploring possibilities offered by quantum computing and 2-D materials.

More over we already discover one planet which was similar to earth called kepler 62e

The concept depicts Kepler-62e, a super planet of Earth size located around 1200 light-years from Earth in the Lyra constellation in the habitable zone of the star which was smaller and cooler than the Sun.

Every 122 days, Kepler-62e orbits the star of host and is approximately 60% larger than the Earth's size. Researchers don't know whether Kepler-62e is a water world or whether it has a solid surface, but its discovery signals a step closer to the world like Earth.

Can the water inside an enhydro agate really be 100s of millions of years old? I'm sceptical.
